Big Bird, in the Flatiron District

Giant bird, nyc
Photo by myself around 23rd Street and Broadway, in the Flatiron District.

A giant bird made of giant nails stood near the Flatiron Building, the other day. He carried a giant flower in his giant mouth.

The bird is 12-feet high, though he looks much taller. He weighs a hefty five tons.

Occasionally there is art in the open area near the Flatiron Building. Most of the time, the space is filled with tables and chairs. The open triangle is formed by the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, which runs on a diagonal.

This photo is from the stash. The bird was removed a couple days ago (!). I think I took this photo from the car.
